Nothing brings out the December spirit quite like Jazz music. Whether it’s the holidays or the closing of the year, December is nostalgic, soulful, and reflective, just like Jazz. So, when we heard that the Thelonious Monk Paris 1969 record was being re-issued, we knew we had to send it your way this month, and in a hurry.
Monk, who is regarded as one of the giants of American music, is at his very best in this brilliant live performance. He dances up and down the keys in his usual fashion, and creates some of the most captivating and enjoyable music we’ve heard in awhile.
Plus, legend has it that no record collection is complete without a little Theolonious Monk.
